Sarah Raven Peat-Free Compost

We have been trialling peat-free composts for 7 years and this is the exclusive recipe we now use both at Perch Hill and at our Lincolnshire nursery – it is the best by far! Incredibly reliable, with consistent and brilliant results across our full range of bulbs, plants, and seeds – it has outperformed all other brands we’ve tested

Bulb Starter

Give bulbs a head start with this granular mycorrhizal fungi-based biological fertiliser. It also includes vermiculite for good drainage and seaweed to stimulate root development. Good for tulips, narcissi, alliums and even potatoes

Bulb Planting Trays

Our Bulb Planting Trays are a useful addition to your gardening kit; they're great for planting bulbs in beds and borders and layering bulbs in containers

Strulch

Use this on all your borders and beds - it will enrich the soil, suppress weeds, help retain moisture AND deter slugs and snails!

Sarah Raven Etched Precision Bulb Planter

For planting your bulbs without breaking your back, use a long bulb planter. It is hand-forged with a rust-proof steel blade, for superb strength and reliability, and a fine ash handle – the best money can buy
